ICEE and WFEO have a long-term and friendly cooperative relationship. In 2017, ICEE Director WU Qidi and past WFEO President Marlene Kanga signed a MOU to determine their cooperation in the field of international engineering education. In order to continue promoting the development of engineering education worldwide and jointly carry out internationally recognized engineering education initiatives, ICEE and WFEO have renewed the MOU by mutual consent. The MOU will be extended to 2026.
WFEO is a consortium of national and regional engineering organizations established in 1968 with the initiative and support from UNESCO. Headquartered in Paris, WFEO is the largest international engineering organization in the world.
ICEE was jointly applied by the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and Tsinghua University and approved by the 38th session of the General Assembly of UNESCO in November 2015. On June 6, 2016, ICEE was officially established in Beijing.
